Women in Shape (WiSh) – a Collaborative Research Workshop

16. July 2018 / 8:00 - 20. July 2018 / 17:00

The Collaborative Research Workshop Women in Shape -3 (WiSh): Modeling Objects in 2D and 3D will take place in Trier, Germany from 16 July through 20 July, 2018.  

Unlike the traditional workshop format, the focus of WiSh is to carry out a few designated research projects that will be initiated during the workshop and lead to a viable collaboration among the participants.


We welcome applications from women researchers at various stages in their careers (from graduate student to senior researcher) from all over the world to foster research collaboration and mentorship.


Participants will spend one week working together in small groups to solve open questions in shape modeling. Potential topics may include shape optimization, understanding shape complexity from multiple perspectives, generating discrete formulations of variational problems and optimizing solutions, and developing flexible, robust, and compact 2D and 3D shape representations.

Workshop Language:



Kathryn Leonard, Occidental College (contact for applicants from America and Australia)
